First lady Melania Trump's parents visited a federal building in New York City with their immigration attorney.

The Slovenian couple had no comment Wednesday afternoon after about an hour-long meeting in the building which houses offices for federal immigration officials who help process citizenship applications.

Lawyer Michael Wildes says Viktor and Amalija Knavs are lawful permanent residents of the U.S.

The attorney and the White House have declined to comment on whether the first lady's parents are seeking to become U.S. citizens.

A spokeswoman for the first lady declined to comment Wednesday saying Mrs. Trump's parents are not part of the Trump administration and deserve their privacy.

Republican President Donald Trump has pushed to restrict immigration.
